Book Description

A global sourcebook of women playwrights through the ages

Looking for plays by women to produce, perform, or read? She Also Wrote Plays is a comprehensive international guide to women playwrights and their work.

In an attempt to make visible those who have often been obscured, the entries included herein provide biographical details on over four hundred writers, summaries of their major plays along with a list of other works, and a complete publication history, as well as an extensive, supplemental bibliography. The author, Susan Croft, includes writers whose work demonstrates the diversity and development of dramatic writing in English-speaking countries over the millennia. This diverse collection spans the tenth to the twenty-first centuries; the Americas to the Far East; and covers the works of well-known writers, such as Pulitzer Prize winner Marsha Norman, alongside the lesser-known dramatic adaptations of Jane Austen and Harriet Beecher Stowe and hard-to-find manuscripts, such as the unpublished translations of leading Finnish playwright Hella Wuolijoki. An essential tool for playwrights, performers, producers, and students, She Also Wrote Plays is for anyone interested in the cultural legacy of women in the theatrical world.
